OwyheeStar Week Twenty-Two 2016
Greetings From Far Eastern Oregon
Our wet weather has left us, and this means our hay is happily laying cut in the field awaiting the next step. I love hay bales. There is something fun about looking at them scattered around the field and then stacked. It seems American and close to the agriculture that helped make America great. Yes, I still believe we are a great nation. This weekend is Memorial Weekend–Monday is Memorial Day.
Memorial Day, an American holiday observed on the last Monday of May, honors men and women who died while serving in the U.S. military. Originally known as Decoration Day, it originated in the years following the Civil War and became an official federal holiday in 1971. Many Americans observe Memorial Day by visiting cemeteries or memorials, holding family gatherings and participating in parades. Unofficially, at least, it marks the beginning of summer.
Remember the Cost of Freedom
Let Us Not Forget…
Those That Paid the Ultimate Price!
This Week on the Blog
The Sunday Hugs Blog didn’t set the stage for Monday’s blog where Bella was eating holes in the sheetrock. Regardless, we traveled the landscape of living with the Weimaraner this week. On Tuesday, we heard from Jim who has had an amazing life with Molly–she has improved and saved his life on many occasions. No one can say for sure what a Weimaraner will become. For those wanting to know, our concern was very real about Jim getting this very hunt-potential highly driven Weimaraner; however, it has ended well. Molly has a job of a different kind. All we can say is Wow!
Here are the week’s posts if you wish you review or visit them today!
This blog is not the only OwyheeStar blog. It is the only daily blog. There is a somewhat different blog located on our Primary Website–www.OwyheeStar.com. We are doing a once a month product review for www.Chewy.com. Our recent report on the Wild Calling canned food is worth the read. We have used a lot of various wet foods. Some canned food looked better in the can. Nevertheless; none has smelled better or been more widely received. The girls sampling this mixed in their usual kibble made it clear they approved. To better access the value of this particular food we opened a different, very high-quality brand. It had the large chunks of food. Neither Weim cleaned it up, nor did they seem happy to see the previously used canned food. Once they were presented with the Wild Calling, it was evident–they preferred to stick with it. Check out our Wild Calling Product Review.
On a very personal note
We have lost some of the much needed steam to get things accomplish. A two-year push has kind of worn us down. Nevertheless, I expect we will get a second wind and begin chipping away on the bigger picture. Of course, it is not the only thing we have going. We have the puppy thing and some farm work. Our personal life is dictated by this as well as health and finances. Above you see the puppies on a recent trip to the Three Cliff’s Sanctuary.
Keeping up the farm is no small thing, and Cliff finds himself behind the curve. Weeds always grow fast, and we have foxtails which are not only undesirable but dangerous for the Weimaraner. We always fight them or the puncture weeds it seems.
(Note–thank you to all of you who continue to send us updates. There is a lot to be learned from other Weimlovers; it puts a smile on our faces too!)
There is no way we could ever thank you enough for your love and support. We are immensely grateful for those who continually provide us with the material for the blog. Unfortunately, sometimes this is only photos and no script. There is no end in sight of our farmhouse remodel. We are doing it ourselves, and it is the installment plan–we are not borrowing to do this. We buy something and install it. Therefore, having the updates is greatly appreciated than usual–it is always a blessing!
